So in all honesty why are you single? I'm talking serious real talk here.

For me personally there are 3 reasons.

1. I was not mentally or emotionally capable to have a relationship when I was with the ex I was head over heels in love with. If we had stayed friends a few months longer before jumping into a relationship we would be married with a family at this point. As it was things feel apart but we stay in touch.

2. I'm very picky, I want someone who shares a lot of my interests and has a somewhat uncommon personality. I live in a decently rural area, there is a geek community but honestly there aren't many single women.

3. I'm shy, the thought of starting a conversation with a stranger scares me. It's not impossible that I've walked right by miss perfect in a coffee shop, comic shop or other random public place and both of us just failed to say hello.

So what about you?

Just isn't the right time. I don't necessarily know what I'm going to major in or what I'm going to do in life, and not knowing that while adding in another variable like a GF just wouldn't be prudent.
Also, I don't feel as though I'm ready to be in a relationship again just yet until I work on myself as an individual more. Besides just figuring out exactly what it is I want to do, there are lots of parts of myself that I want to improve before being in a relationship with someone again.

I get bored of other people and I'm far too self-centered to sacrifice any of my freedom to be tied to another person.

I've got plenty of my own problems to deal with, no need to drag anyone else into it. Maybe I'll start looking once I've settled a few of them.

Because a relationship requires two people, but I can be single by myself.

I've had bad experiences with my relationships. They just want to consume all your time and then they talk about a future together (marriage).

All my ex gfs complained about me not spending "enough" time with them. I like to be alone and that's always a problem.


Being single is great, there's no one breathing on your neck. I do feel lonely sometimes but it's way better than being chained to someone.

This.

On a serious note. I'm not entirely sure. I did have a girlfriend last year and there was a lot of fighting nearing the bitter end of our relationship. She showed her true colors and our beliefs and morals conflicted heavily.

I also haven't really been actively looking. I don't think I'm ready to give my heart to someone at the moment, so I'm just trying to get by and improve my own life first before I decide to share it with someone special.

The main reason is because of my hobbies and to be honest I enjoy solitude.

Well I'm technically single, but my hearts caught on someone I can't call my own. I've thrown away several relationship opportunities and so far I don't regret throwing them away. So I'm basically in that position where I'm going to keep trying because I still have a chance with this one person and they just so happen to be so important to me that I'm willing to waste my time, effort, and possibility of getting broken on them. So far, once again, no regrets.

I'm lazy, I'm disdainful of the resultant drama that accompanies romance, and I'm relatively frigid and shy.
